    I live in illinois and have worked as a CNA for 3 years. I make $11.20 right, but after nursing school plan on moving to Georgia. The rates I'm reading in this thread are discouraging. I've never met a nurse who make less than $21/hr in illinois. Hopefully the standard of living is higher is Georgia.

    Hey bigboi,

    I believe the here do make $21+ an hour here depending on where at in Georgia and if its a privat or state facility.
    But as CNA you sure do make good money though I haven't seen anything on here which indicated anyone else making this much as an CNA.
    How much longer do you have until you finish with Nursing School?

    I work in ATL at a hospice and make $18.25/hr as an lpn ( finished lpn school jun 06), the rn makes $27.00/hr the cna $11.00/hr. On monday nights i do a 12 hr shift, homehealth and make $21.00/hr. My pay is kool for me, but i still wish to become a RN soon.
    what hospice do you work at?

    Is the 27 an hour base or with shift diffs? Also is that the starting rate or with an X amount of experience?

    I just moved from Colorado and as a CNA i was making 15.00 an hour for an agencies and 12.00 at nursing homes. I moved to Georgia and found the pay here really sucks. I took a medication aide course in colorado to compliment my cna, for 55.00 and just went online to see how much the classes cost in georgia and they have lost their minds. The course here is 494.00. Also i found that the skill base here for cna is nothing like in colorado, its lacking miserably. and they gave me such a hard time about obtaining reciprocity in the state of georgia. Home is starting to look better and better. Georgia needs to get it together healthcare is expensive and hard work and they need to pay their healthcare professionals as such.
